A couple more photos of the interior of the Provincial Palace. The treats on the tables are raw carrots, radishes and cauliflower to be dipped in two different sauces (probably tartare and thousand island, straight from the supermarket).

We were invited to a reception at the Provincial Palace, which happens to be the Palace of the Bishop Princes, in honour of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Liege. It was a great opportunity to finally see what the Palace looks like from the inside. As you might expect, there's plenty of mirrors, chandeliers and gold leaf.

These are the renovation works of the Royal Walloon Opera building. Initially I thought they were just going to repair the roof or something but I was obviously wrong. I can't begin to imagine what the final building will look lie... It appears that the renovation budget is close to 27 million Euros.
